Holiday sex

5 reasons we love holiday sex

Why does sex reach such celestial heights on vacation? Could it be shedding the familiar skin of everyday life? The physical effect indulgence and opulence has on your body? The thrill of the new and unknown? All of these are factors, but there’s more to the story. Here are five key things to keep top of mind for the best holiday sex of your life. 

Fantasy 

Step off the plane, and into an entirely different persona. You’re a new character in a thrilling fantasy of your own making. The new city becomes an alternate reality, where you can shed the constraints of your everyday life and indulge in experiences you would have never considered before. When the backdrop, characters, script and everything else has changed around you - it’s only natural that you should change with it. 

Senses 

What we look at, hear, eat and experience all influences our desires. If at home it feels like the stresses of work and family are omnipresent, it’s easy for intimacy to take a backseat. When you’re usually exposed to babies crying, deadlines looming or household chores piling up, shocking your system on holidays with pure pleasure can have a considerable impact on your sexuality. 

Anonymity 

Going incognito. The anonymity we feel when surrounded entirely by strangers can be exhilarating if we let it. Abandon any connection to home that may be weighing you down, and live entirely in the present. There’s something powerful and liberating about being somewhere where nobody knows your name. Let yourself feel free and unguarded, and watch a natural confidence and flirtation take you over. 

Fresh Sheets 

On vacation, your hotel room becomes a private sanctuary where inhibitions can melt away amidst the luxury of plush bedding, soft lighting, and indulgent amenities. Here, in the privacy of a new room far away from the old, you can explore your desires with a newfound sense of abandon. 

R & R 

We can’t overlook the almighty power of relaxation. Vacations provide us with the opportunity to unwind and recharge both body and mind. As we bask in the luxury of leisurely days and unhurried nights, stress tends to melt away, making more room for connection with our partners and ourselves. When we're at ease, barriers naturally dissolve, allowing for deeper intimacy and more fulfilling sexual experiences.

If you’re going on holidays, you are granted a rare opportunity to curate a new identity, liberated from the conventions, monotony and time restraints of everyday life. Don’t let it pass you by! Escapism, spontaneity, relaxation and romance is the perfect cocktail for sex worth going on holiday for.
